Non-figure merchandise - part 1

Non-figure merchandise - part 1
14 Aug 2010 22:54:34

Hello all! It has been a long time since I made my last post here.
Many things happened that required my attention (like my dog's death T_T) so I've been able to maintain my activity here only via comments.

Hope things will get better from now on.

On to the subject: We're all about figures here, but there is much more to collect in our small otaku world^^ Stickers, posters, jewelery, even anime-kitchenware.

In fact I've got lots of stuff like this in my collection.
And it's not for display only, but for actual use. This time I'll show you some of my anime-themed kitchenware. My primary source of this kind of merch is ANIMAXIS, great (thought a little pricey) shop of all kinds of anime-manga stuff.

The first one I've bought (about 5 years ago) is this One Piece Chopper man mug.


It is my favorite tea mug, great quality. For five years not a single fracture or chip. I also love its soft pink insides:


Then 2 children's plastic bento boxes.


One is Petit Eva-themed.


And other one is Gintama-themed


They have two sections: lover one for rice and upper one (with a lid) for meat or seafood or whatever. They also came with a band (on the first pic) to hold the bento-box together. I used to carry my lunch in it, but unfortunately the lid was not leakproof T_T, and the band soon strained so it won't hold the whole box together.

I also had a matching pair of Gintama "pencil" chopsticks:


They came in a neat box and looked funny:


But they turned out impractical, because plastic they are made of is rather slippery. It was really hard to grab food with them.

As you can see I love Gintama stuff. There are not too many figures of Gintama charas, but there are plenty of other Gintama-themed stuff. I was quite surprised to see Gintama wine glasses. I bought two of them.


They come in a neat cardboard box. On a glass there is a logo that says KINTAMA instead of Gintama (kintama actually means "balls"^__^) and on the other side there is an image of Gintoki with a phrase in Japanese. Unfortunately, I forgot the translation >_<


The last thing I wanted to show you tonight is a parfait glass with a long spoon. Of course it is also Gintama-themed. The main character of Gintama - Gintoki has a sweet tooth and especially loves parfait.


The glass bears an image of Gintoki in blue, with some other phrase in Japanese.


I love this thing^^


The spoon looks like this


And here is how I use this parfait glass


Delicious isn't it? ^____^

As you can see^__^
IMHO, there is a bit of hysteria going on around our Russian post. It is not as bad, as some people see it.
Just my opinion^^
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

Quite impressive I must say. Beyond I like the idea that you actually use it. I only have one XXXholic glass, but I've never drank anything out of it. I have a lot of Japanese kitchenware, but nothing to do with anime.

Nope. The thing is it's too difficult to translate short phrases from Japanese when you haven't watched the anime or just can't clearly understand the situation. Too many possible meanings.

1.
ジャストドゥーイット
我が命に代えても

Just do it
Even if I command... (I'm not sure about this!)

And the second I just can't see it clearly :)

I always find these types of things interesting. Although I have bought anything like these, figures always come first.

I like the Gintama bento-box. Come to think of it, they should make a Sadaharu throw-pillow - he looks like he'd make a great pillow...
